ah cool, cheers for the responses. I do tend to overthink things. Still trying to think of somewhere to go for night shots. :) Im thinking of architecture, some type of building.

Evening all
Lots going on in here, bit of an online business school:D

Have not been up to much, paper work on Saturday, lazy day yesterday and went out to take some photos of a mate & his son riding bikes.

Found that I have a gap in my focus range, in the forest, the 18-50 was a little too short and the 70-200 too long, when will it ever end:rolleyes:

A couple of photos, this was in the Maramaurua Forest, there's a bit on a machinery graveyard there as well, will post a couple of some as well

yea I have seen that, that's just crazy. I would have thought it would be easer to get a model of the right shape in the first place.

I wonder how good the finial result is, if you look at the image at 100% how much of the effect would one see?

Its all in the brush size. That makes a big difference. Yes I agree 100% image would be the true test.

MarkV was that flash video any good if so I will pass on to a couple of others

Yes, well worth looking at & playing with the options. I will be getting another flash & a soft-box & some sort of reflector arrangement. Recommend it to all.

If your home tomorrow night, I'll drop the cable & the extension tubes off, mine should be here early this week (I hope)

No hurry for cable or tubes.When yours arrive will be fine.

Yes it is a good video.

some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", and an M5, also an M6 that has had a 720nm filter bolted onto the sensor:

Another thing that I learnt, having two quite different bodies is a bit of a pain, I had forgotten where half the buttons on the 350 were and my nose kept on hitting and changing the drive setting button, kept changing from one shot, AI servo & AI focus:o very frustrating!

TC's are designed for PRIMES not zooms. If the pics come out crap then dont blame the TC designers.

I loose very little IQ with 300 and 2xTC. Put a 2xTC on a 70-200 and I get rubbish.

hmm - my 2x on the 70 - 200 produces great results - on the 300 produces great results. ;)

maybe your 2x and your 70 -200 dont like each other.. :(

looks like fun - did the second shot result in the implied carnage? or did the following two manage to avoid the hapless rider & bike...

Very, very close to the carnage, he was a bit ahead of the others, I saw him look up and see me (bright yellow jacket) and thought he would show off, gunned it and blew it:lol:
The guys bringing up the rear had the opportunity to stop, taken with the 350 so only 3 frames per second, here is the first of the burst
